Groundwater Assessment Report (GAR)

Groundwater Assessment Reports

Groundwater Assessment Reports

There are many technical issues associated with the construction of underground structures and chief among these is the management of groundwater.  Consideration therefore needs to be given for groundwater before, during and after construction and the consulting document that provides critical information and advice on this is called a groundwater assessment report, or GAR.

Atma Environmental provides the requisite site investigation, groundwater investigations and consulting advice to ascertain relevant siting, soil and groundwater parameters that may be affected by proposals involving the construction of deep basement excavations.  Services to the building industry provided by Atma Environmental include:

  • Siting advice
  • Investigation of groundwater quality, depth and flow rates
  • Acid sulphate soils
  • Groundwater discharge testing and licensing
  • Provision of Groundwater Assessment Reports in accordance with Council requirements
  • Preparation of Groundwater Management Plans where issues exist

In addition to the above services for the building industry, Atma Environmental provides a range of other groundwater contamination services and a comprehensive pre-aquisition site suitability assessment service, which provides a full spectrum of advice on the overall suitability of a land parcel.  If you need groundwater-related services, look no further, we will manage and oversee all the necessary works and prepare a groundwater assessment report clearly detailing all of the issues you need to comply with Council requirements!
